A good, easily digestible summary of the IPCC’s latest fraudulent Hockey Stick:

The first IPCC ‘climate bible’ reports showed that past climates in the Holocene had varied from warmer than today, to much colder than today, in a rather cyclical pattern.

However, in one of the subsequent IPCC reports, a ‘hockey stick’ graph had been prominently displayed, which had a flat ‘stick’ that wiped out past cyclical variations, and a sharp uptick suggesting that human influence on climate was extreme and temperatures much higher than before.

That hockey stick graph was hotly disputed.

In the latest IPCC AR6 report – but only in the 42 page “Summary for Policy Makers”, there is a new ‘son of hockey stick’ graph, which presents a similar imagery.

Steve McIntrye from Climate Audit found both hockey sticks suspicious as they reminded him of questionable mining promotion graphs he had seen – and indeed, in the business world, famous hockey stick graphs include those of Enron and Groupon, to name a couple.

We offer a brief overview of the make-up of the new ‘son of hockey stick’ – please see Steve McIntyre’s detailed analysis.
